A method deploys a road safety flare near a faulty self-driving vehicle (SDV). One or more processors detect a driving problem severity level for a faulty SDV. One or more processors assess environmental conditions at the location of the faulty SDV. One or more processors determine an opportune position for deploying the road safety flare based on the environmental conditions at the location of the faulty SDV and then deploy, according to directions from the faulty SDV, a road safety flare at the opportune position.
